Zinc mine in North Green­land

The Citro­nen Fjord is not in Spits­ber­gen, but in Peary Land in nort­hern­most Green­land. The zinc occur­rence in Citro­nen Fjord are known sin­ce long ago, but are cur­r­ent­ly under inves­ti­ga­ti­on and mining is sup­po­sed to begin in 4 years, aiming at 300.000 tons of annu­al export.

The Citro­nen Fjord is part of the Nor­the­ast Green­land Natio­nal Park. The air­port near Lon­gye­ar­by­en is cur­r­ent­ly play­ing a vital role in the logistics of the inves­ti­ga­ti­ons.

Citro­nen Fjord (red cir­cle) is situa­ted wit­hin the Natio­nal Park in nort­hern­most Green­land.
